There is a great deal of enclosures out there, so not sure which one you aare referring to. Any 2.5inch SATA external USB or Firewire enclosure will work fine, (firewire 800 if your moving a great deal of data + firewire has some extra options for a mac based computer). Something with firewire and USB may be best if you are planning on using this for different platforms and functions.

These enclosures can be had on newegg and USB only models quite cheap on ebay.
Based on your question this is prob. the best way to retrieve your data from a non functional computer. (mounting the drive an an external, it will appear as a normal external drive so file permissions etc should not be an issue).
